I'm planning to attend the STNICCC 2015 demo party later this year, ideally with an Atari prod ready in time to participate to the competitions.
Even if I'm doing most of my development on emulators, it's important for me to test everything on the real hardware!
Unfortunately the hardware in question is old and prone to failures, so it's time to get it ready and fix the issues.
My software history (part 1)

Sometimes on IRC you find people you've not met in many, many years.
Inevitably at some point the discussion have to go round what you've been doing all these years, if you are still a programmer, where you are working, etc.. etc... and then of course younger participants start asking questions about our older stuff, probably because they are not used to interact with dinosaurs who actually programmed in COBOL, used black and white terminals, and even touched punch cards.
Atari STe 20th anniversary
Wed 25th November 2009
In 2005 I participated to the online demo competition organized by the group DHS (Dead Hackers Society). With other members of the group Creators we made the Conflict of Interest demo screen, and reached the 3rd position in the compo.
We are now in 2009, and yes 20 years ago - 1989 - this was the unveiling of the Atari STe. Time to do a new demo !
